Re: why do people hate electronic music

Because enjoying any particular style of music is a skill, and not everyone has it. Being able to enjoy a genre is something you acquire from experience. Until something in your brain "clicks" any genre can sound irritating and noisy. Once you get the groove you hear the music in a completely different way. What was once merely repetitive becomes entrancing. Or with Jazz Fusion, for instance, what was once chaotic and nonsensical becomes beautiful. Saying that EDM is bad because its repetitive is of course retarded. It's the very element of repetition that allows it to put your mind in a place that other genres simply can't... if you've learnt to take yourself there. Unfortunately many people never get to take that journey, and EDM will remain for them a bunch of monotonous bleeps. Sucks to be them!

I'm glad you brought this up actually because I also think that learning to listen to music is a skill. It takes skill to drop your preconceptions, especially if a genre feels like its violating you aurally.

This is true, otherwise there wouldn't be a bunch of books on the subject.

"Jazz Fusion: None off the sweet ass tasty licks, twice the self-indulgence!"














p.s. Unisonus, I dig your post, don't mean to imply otherwise. Although I think we're thinking of free-jazz... Although again, that is a subgenre of fusion... So, whatev...

And he got it from his friend, that famous country songwriter... Harlan... something? (to google, man the battle stations!) Which was news to me, I thought it was a saying Dylan got from Woody in the folk song lineage.

· It is purely instrumental most of the time, bar pop EDM (people like singing).
· There is a lot of repetition, which people can't understand (even though most songs by bands are repetitive cords and chorus-verse structure)
· The fact the music is electronically generated and not 'natural' sounds which generated more rich analogue waves of stringe being strum. Etc…


I think that these are three main reasons for peoples hate towards it, there is more you could list if you wanted too. However I generally feel sorry for them because they can’t appreciate this other aspect of music, while I still enjoy listening to a band or singer.

I like to view EDM as music with out a soul (this doesn’t mean is cant be beautiful), pure rhythm, sound and all human influences removed. It is music in its purist form. While bands and classical music is filled with human aspects, through lyrics or playing and instruments. When this is done manually you have a bit of humanity thrown into what you are listening to.
I agree with this completely aside from the part where you say it lacks soul.
I think where electro is above most other genres, is that with it, you create your own meaning based on the feeling you get, or the setting you're in when you listen to it.
In most other genres the lyrics have a predetermined meaning, and you adopt that meaning from the songwriter. Whereas when it comes to electro you there are rarely any vocals witch makes the song that much more flexible as to what meaning you assign to it, witch makes the song a lot more personal and the song can spark different feelings for each indivitual that hears it.

I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud here, maybe I'm just talking out of my ass.

Not bashing genres with vocals in them btw, I enjoy them as much as electro, I just enjoy them in a different way.
